WARNING TO SELF AND TO ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN!!! AVOID 'BAD' CARBS AT ALL COSTS!!! THEY ARE ADDICTING!! THEY WILL SLOW DOWN YOUR WEIGHT LOSS DURING THE LOSING STAGE (and you won't even notice)!! THEY WILL MAKE THE SCALE GO UP AFTER THE HONEYMOON PERIOD IS OVER.

Success in Maintenance starts with GOOD CHOICES during the Honeymoon Period.

I feel I need to repeat this: I am a FIRM believer in Good Whey Protein Drinks!!!!! It is sooooo much harder to do Maintenance without them!

Hang in there Roz!! Things will get better, but not by eating!

I woke up this morning to the alarm which almost never happens, I'm usually up before it and ready for the gym. BUT yesterday I did my FULL weight routine (first time in a while) and my muscles are feeling it today. So today is a rest day, my Trucker is happy because he always is telling me I don't have to go to the gym everyday.....well YES, I do!! LOL

Was out after work last night so today is a log as I go kind of day. In my "tickle trunk" I have HB eggs, yogurt, jello, protein hot chocolate, chicken breast, chili, and a burger. Lots to choose from.

The struggle today will be to stay out of the damn chocolates and cookies that keep arriving in our office! December, you will not defeat me!!

Have a great day everybody.

Over 100 lbs lost! and 13 lbs below goal weight!

I haven't had surgery yet and doing all the pre-op requirements now.

I've been following your daily menu posts to get ideas.

My clinic stresses no snacks between meals after surgery even after you reach goal weight.

Did you add small snacks when you reached goal?

Thanks

I have always had snacks, both right after surgery and when I'm trying to maintain.

It's difficult to hit your protein numbers if you don't have snacks. A snack can be a protein shake.

I basically eat all day. You have to figure out what works for you during the losing and maintenance stages because this is going to be for the rest of your life. What kind of eater are you? Even when I was heavy I ate numerous "snacks" instead of sitting down to eat a meal. The difference now is that I try my best to make my "snacks" center around protein. At my lunch and dinner I usually have a small carb like 1/2 cup potatoes with my protein meat or maybe a slice of bread with meat and cheese. I'll grab a handful of Honey Nut Cheerios just because I walk past them....

Early out I drank 4 protein drinks a day for my snacks and only Protein for me 3 meals. At 9+ years out I'm down to 2 Protein drinks a day. I only use GOOD Whey Protein. I love Matrix Mint Cookie and the Syntrex Nectuers.
